Experience the life of a Worker on Mechanical Turk

I tried hands on Amazon Mechanical Turk Developer environment workersandbox[2] because of its __ and restriction-free access across nations. It is a simulated environment that allows users to test their applications and perform HITs[Human Intelligence Tasks]. Being a testing platform, it does not allow transfer of funds outside the sandbox. I completed a total of 21 tasks and managed to earn 2.10 USD* by 2:00 PM IST 14th January, 2015.

Below is a screenshot of my dashboard from worker account at MTurk.

*Current total is: 27 tasks.

I kept doing few more tasks posted by my peers at Milestone 1 Sandbox HITs[3]

Following are few of the tasks I attempted during the process:

  • Find the Hotel Name Address for Given URL
  • Find the correct(valid) url
  • Find the website address for restaurant
  • Tagging of an Image

Experience the life of a Requester on Mechanical Turk

Again, like the workersandbox, I tried Amazon Mechanical Turk's developer environment requestersandbox[requestersandbox.mturk.com] to get into the shoes of a requester. I also did minor investigations in microworkers[4] and performed task authoring in Daemo. Speaking of MTurk sandbox, I published the following tasks


1) Provide descriptions of popular opensource projects[5]

  • Qualification required: None
  • Number of Assignments per HIT: 15
  • Reward per Assignment: $0.10
  • Input csv file: File:Softwares.csv

2) Judge the sentiment expressed toward: random user tweets[6]

  • Qualification required: Worker should be master
  • Number of Assignments per HIT: 5
  • Reward per Assignment: $0.15
  • Input csv file: File:Sentiment.csv


What did you like? --todo

What did you dislike? --todo

CSV file generated when you download the HIT results: File:Batch 119356 batch results.csv

Explore alternative crowd-labor markets

Because of location restrictions, my account registration was rejected at most of the crowd platforms including MTurk, Uplink. However, I did explore Daemo task authoring locally. Comparison of Daemo with other platforms is described later.
